At a school board meeting in Montgomery County, MD (just north of DC), Moms4Liberty and a groups of Muslim parents demanded soft book bans (via an opt-out process) on pro-LGBTQ books. Counterprotesters demanded schools be secular and not religious. This does not violate ANYONE's religious freedom as both home schooling and religious schools remain legal! Unknown whether Proud Boys linked "Moms4Liberty" sought a Muslim group as a front to soften their image, glommed onto an...

On the 3ed of June, an LGBTQ youth rally was held at Orlando's Lake Eola. Three Fascists showed up, distributing religious extremist material as close to the rally as they dared but not making any effort at a serious attack.

Hey Brian Kemp and APD, since you have collecting bail money confused with laundering money, I thought I'd launder some right in front of your faces so you can understand the difference! Now I have some clean money(even if it's just a couple bucks...), though there isn't enough soap in this whole state to wash your filthy campaign cash.

This was a much larger event than the previous two and the speakers were more liberal than radical. For all that, a sitting Congressman called DeSantis a fascist from the stage.

Trump claimed over the weekend he would be arrested on Tues, March 21 over the Stormy Danial's hush money and its source. He called on his supporters to swarm the streets and fight for him. The result was fizzled rallies in many places. All of the Florida rallies known to this author fizzled, drawing a dozen or so. Maybe 20 cycled in and out of the 5PM rally in Ocala, FL which was supposed to be major and at which violence was feared. One of the Proud Boys was carrying a gun visible through his...

On the 19th of March, New York City kicked the Proud Boy's asses as they began building up for the possible indictment of Donald Trump on Tues, March 21. The Proud Boys made the mistake of messing with the LGBTQ community in the home of the Stonewall Riot, and got a taste of what the vice squad got back on June 28, 1969. One Proud Boy admitted to having "get the shit beat out of me" THIS is how to handle Proud Boys! This is the "Manhattan Welcome" the Proud Boys should...

On the 15th of March, SDS and their allies showed up in front of the Hillsborough County, FL courthouse in Tampa. They demanded that all charges from the brutal March 6 arrests of diversity protesters at University of S Florida/Tampa be dropped. One of those brutalized and arrested by the university police department's goons spoke at the protest about the abuse she endured at their hands.

One speaker pulled off a T-shirt to reveal another w the names of 1,000 trans people. Another took their hormone injection right in front of the Senate committee. Still another said the committee would have blood on their hands if this passes as it would kill so many trans kids, and finished by saying "we will not be silent, Stonewall was a riot, and if this bill passes you'll be declaring war on our trans community. Hearing rules limited speaking to 30 seconds and banned clapping or even...

On the final day of the March 4-11 Stop Cop City Week of Action, and just one day after an autopsy proved Tortuguita had been shot through his raised hands in the infamous Jan 18 police attack and murder, police attacked again. This time they raided a nonprofit community space used as a hub for medics. They arrested one person on an old TRAFFIC TICKET and badly trashed the site with no other results Video originally uploaded to twitter by Max Granger at...

On the 10th of March, news came out that W Va is askign the US Supreme Court to review (and no doubt uphold) their law banning transgender girls from girl's sports in school. This in response to a lawsuit filed by a young trans girl against this restriction. That night, Our Rights DC showed up at the US Supreme Court, reminding those present that Stonewall was a riot.

On the 9th of March, protesters returned to Univ of S Florida's Tampa campus, setting up on Fowler Ave so university cops would lack the ability to enforce "trsspass" notices stemming from Mondays brutally violent arrests. Speakers (including several arrested or assaulted Monday by police) demanded all charges from Monday's violent police attack be dropped unconditionally, and that the University meet their original demands to stand up to DeSantis, increase Black enrollment, protect...

Congress and the GOP have blocked DC's criminal justice reform bill in an ugly preview of things to come. On March 8,protesters marched on Capitol Hill and staged a civil disobedience against this interference, demanding statehood and the right to be left alone. If this campaign fails, there is the real risk of the GOP in coming years banning abortion, restricting birth control, persecuting LGBTQ folks, and possibly even banning covid vaccines in DC (as may be about to happen in FL) all thanks...

THIS is police assaulting protesters at USF in Tampa today. Protesters from SDS were opposing Florida dictator DeSantis's anti-diversity policies targetting all schools and universities. Police chief was personally present and may have struck the first blow. Also note that cops are a gang and this may in truth be about Atlanta.

The March 5 raid on the music festival in Weelaunee Forest was even more violent than previously reported. It has emerged that one person at the scene recorded video of cops threatening to open fire with live ammunition after firing tear gas into the woods. That person also reports that 7 minutes later cops announced: "come forward with your hands up or you are going to get shot. I don't know how else to put it, you're going to get hit with a bullet."

Much happened in the Weelaunee Forest on the 5th of March, the second day of the March 4-11 week of action. As a march approached the fenced zone where construction and surveillance equipment is kept, cops fleeing the march were basically chased into the lot,a flurry of fireworks setting them to flight. After they retreated, a bulldozer, two police "UTV" vehicles, a surveillance tower, and an office trailer were put to the torch. Later, a storm of cops descended on a music festival...

Kickoff march into Weelaunee Forest in Atlanta went well. Not one cop dared show their face as people arrived at the well-named Intrenchment Creek trailhead. Note that since the start of the year, the Atlanta cops have started charging ALL non-Georgia residents arrested at any protest over Cop City with "domestic terrorism" without regard to alleged offense, all the way down to jaywalking. In addition, this charge is then used as a basis to hold defendents without bond. In other...

On the 28th of February, the Party for Socialism and Liberation held a protest outside the Pinellas County School Board's meeting. They were protesting the DeSantis/Moms4Liberty agenda of book banning, budget cuts, "Don't Say Gay," the entire school takeover agenda. In Pinellas Countu, if astroturfing so-called "Moms 4 Liberty" manages to elect two more school board members they get a working majority and can effectively turn the Pinellas County schools into Christian...

On the 26th of February, the American Indian Movement planned to protest at the Columbus statue in Tampa, FL to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1973 takeover of Wounded Knee. The concert was near but not AT the statue, more likely the settler government of Tampa is simply determined to keep Indigenous people as far away from their precious Columbus statue as possible. Two of the folks who made it out to the redirected protest at Lykes Gaslight Park in downtown Tampa are facing...

On the 24th of February, Trapt played at the brass Mug in Tampa. Trapt's lead singer is a Proud Boy, and his public pro-Fascist statements have cost the band a drummer (who quit over this shit) and many cancelled shows. While one of the opening acts played, anti-Fascist activists entered the venue parking lot and posted fliers directly on the walls of the brass mug. One by the door called out Trapt as a Nazi band, while other targetted Christopher Rufo, DeSantis's handpicked New College...

On the 21st of February, activists fighting to halt the destruction of Atlanta’s Weelaunee Forest returned to Coral Gables, Miami. This time around was a family-friendly protest to educate the neighbors of a Brasfield & Gorrie office there.
